The ‘Real Housewives of Dubai’ star’s thoughts on balancing motherhood and work
Milan is very busy, from managing her businesses to being a mother, but the reality star does her best to juggle it all.
“I struggle with mom-guilt a lot, but I’ve learned over the years that I can’t pour from an empty cup, so taking care of my wants and needs are essential to being a great mom,” she told Women’s Health. “I set designated days or times to do things that make me happy, like reading a chapter in a book, going to the gym, working on my business, having lunch with friends, or date night with my husband.”
Lesa Milan’s fitness routine
Milan always makes time for exercise. Since becoming a mom, she has said her idea of wellness has changed, and she now takes her mental health as seriously as her physical health.
“Social media always made me feel like I had to ‘snap back’ immediately after children, and sadly, it wasn’t until giving birth to my third son that I let that unrealistic goal go,” she shared. “One week in the gym five days a week and another week only once. But I try to stay really active regardless.”
Fans can’t wait to learn more about Milan as more episodes of The Real Housewives of Dubai air.
